Generic ICOM CI-V (mode=1)
RRC-1258 also supports the CI-V protocol used by almost every ICOM radio. Then you have to use a PC-software ex. HamRadioDeLuxe or a similar rig control software at the control site. All audio and data communication goes true the RRC:s so you don't have to worry about the audio quality. No more problems with soundcards and Skype etc. And most important, you don't need a PC at the remote site.

Here I use HamRadioDeluxe as rig control software.
Cable from RRC-1258 to ICOM Radios
Cable from Mic/Speaker/PC to RRC
I made a cable to connect a HM-103 Mic with RJ-45 connector, 3.5 mm connector for speaker or headset and a standard RS232 cable to PC:s com port. To make a more permanent installation it's possible to mount the 8 pin circular mic connector (often used by ICOM) an a Speaker/Headphone connector on the front of the RRC. Down below is also a drawing describing the use of a HM-36 connector.
When you have finished the cable production always test them with the 2xRJ-45 extender before connecting them to the RRC:s. Drawing 2xRJ-45
The web interface is used
to connect or disconnect from/to the remote site. The Disconnect/Connect
feature is placed on the status page.
